Don Pedro sighting: UFO or Air Force missile?

      As Donna Stensland drove to work at 7:30 a.m. Thursday morning, she was prepared for a typical day working at her housekeeping business. What she got instead was an experience that was out of this world.

While approaching the Don Pedro dam along Highway 132, Stensland said she saw something large reflecting sunlight that appeared to be moving over the hilltops. Then she could make out what she described as a coal-colored, cylindrical object moving slowly before disappearing to the south.

“It freaked me out,” said Stensland, who has never seen an unidentified flying object before. “Never in my life have I witnessed something this crazy weird.”

Officials with multiple military outlets said what she likely witnessed was the result of a missile test at a New Mexico Air Force base that caught the attention of thousands of people and multiple news outlets in the Southwest.

Though according to Stensland’s account, the phenomenon appeared much closer, just over the nearby ridges.

“I was looking at (what looked like) a big giant wine bottle without the elongated head … as if it was going at helicopter speed. I thought, there’s no way I’m seeing what I think I’m seeing,” Stensland said. “All of the sudden it just shot off. It just vanished like it went into a cloud. … But the sky was clear.” . . .
